I've been a little bit worried because I read about all these other babies that already seem to have a full vocabulary (Dude - I so need to stay off The Bump) and our little munchkin doesn't say much more than 'mama' and 'dada'.
I have felt like a bad mommy for not working with my kid more and getting him to talk. His 15 month appt is this Wednesday (Jesus! How is this kid already 15 months old?!?) and I worry that Dr. Graham is going to wonder what's wrong with my non-walking and non-talking kid. To be fair, it's not like he is silent. He babbles constantly, but I can't understand a damn thing he's saying. He seems quite content with his conversations, however.
On Saturday I was playing with him and his big stuffed duck. When I said duck he repeated "dut" after me. I can't even tell you how happy I was that he was trying to repeat after me. I'm not 100% sure that he associates it with his yellow fluffy friend, but I'll take it.
At the very least he is repeating after us. Now I just need to get J to clean up his potty mouth before the munchkin repeats another "-uck" word.
